2020 KIA SONET| What We Know So Far!
Know The Latest Kia Sonet Price In Nepal 2021.
Kia’s much-awaited car Kia Sonnet is now available in the Nepali market.
Although the booking was opened in 2020, the car has recently been available for customers.
Continental Trading Enterprises is an official distributor of Kia’s for Nepal.
The diesel engine Kia Sonnet will be available in 3 variants, and the petrol engine Kia Sonnet will be available in one variant.
The Kia Sonet comes in four distinct configurations, with prices starting at Rs. 35.90 lakhs.
The lowest HTE variant, which would cost Rs. 35.90 lakhs, will be powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine.
The HTX, priced at Rs. 47.90 lakhs, the HTK+ AT, priced at Rs. 49.90 lakhs, and the top-of-the-line GTX+ variation, priced at Rs. 57.90V lakhs would all be powered by a 1.5-litre diesel engine.
The initial variant of the petrol-powered SONET HTE will be priced at Rs 35.9 lakhs. It will be available in a 1.2-litre petrol engine.
The scaled-down SUV form works well for the Sonet, with its upright and confident visage.
Full-LED headlights with integrated daytime running lamps that double as turn indicators are standard on the top-spec models.
Kia calls the LED headlights Cruise Jewel. It also has a turbo shaped front six plates.
The wide grille (with an excellent knurled chrome outline) and the hood creases, combined with the flared wheel arches, offer the Sonet much-needed visual power.
The stepwells of ancient India inspire the chrome border for the projector fog lamps and the tiered design on the grille, which Kia claims, are two exquisite features you’ll love.
To that end, the Sonet is a full 20mm broader than the Venue. When viewed from the back, the connected tail lamps add to the Sonet’s visual breadth.
The stop lamps’ LED treatment is striking, especially after nightfall.
Kia only provides 16-inch alloy wheels on the HTX+ and GTX+ models, which is a little surprising.
The alloy wheels are unchanged, except for a red accent on the centre cap on the GT Line edition.
For the GT, there’s even extra red, with highlights on the cladding and grille, a new design for the faux skid plates, and red brake callipers.
Kia Sonnet will compete with Suzuki Vitara Breza, Mahindra XUV 300 and Hyundai Venue.
The Sonet’s upright stance makes getting in and out a breeze, even for the elderly. The low window line (just below your shoulder level), the big windows, and the upright but thin console all contribute to a notably elevated seating position.
On the ergonomics front, Everything is within easy reach, and the smartly constructed storage compartments make it simple to get used to the cabin right away.
A small slit between the two cupholders can be utilized to store your car key or to allow your smartphone to ‘stand’ in that space.
If not, you can put it on the wireless charging tray or the shelf under it.
A 1-litre bottle can be stored in the door pads, and there’s also an (unnecessary) umbrella holder. You’ll find plenty of room for your wallet and other knickknacks behind the front armrest.
From the HTK model forward, the driver’s seat can be modified for height, and tilt-adjust steering is included. Despite Kia’s relatively big “wall” between the instrument binnacle and the infotainment console, rookie drivers will appreciate the elevated seating position that allows them to see the edge of the bonnet and the sides.
The knurled finish of the AC vents is copied in plastic, and the fog lamp bezel is duplicated in plastic for the AC louvres, tying the cabin design to the exterior.
The speaker grilles and door pads feature an attractive triangular design. The graining on the top half of the dash is what sticks out.
On the top half of the door pads, the same plastic is used. The dashboard’s lower half is made of more complex, more affordable materials.
The compact SUV has a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system. It also has Bose’s seven-speaker system, electric sunroof and front ventilated seats.
The car can also be connected to a smartwatch. Its dashboard is very similar to the Kia Celtos, which will have the option of UVO connectivity.
It has six airbags, ABS with EBD, front and rear parking sensor, tyre pressure monitoring sensor, auto headlight, brake assist, electronic stability control and other modern features.
